Frolicking Water Fun in the Sun without Getting Wet
Ocean Addicts is a local home grown business right here in Maroochydore – you can spot them hiring stand up paddle-boards (SUP) in Cotton Tree Park where you can hire a board, book a lesson, register for yoga or meditation on a SUP - plenty of options are available.
SUP are available for hire daily, just call the shop if they are not on the river foreshore. SUP Yoga begins again in early October and is $30 per class or $20 if you have your own board. These classes include a beach yoga warm up, paddle in the ocean or river and then play around for ten minutes after the class.
The business premises are on Aerodrome Road, where people can order their own custom made SUP or kite surfboards from the internet and have them home delivered. Their website also provides a local surf forecast by webcam advising of the best times to kite-surf.
Something I really enjoy watching, but doubt I will try, as they seem to fly so fast. It's like a mix between paragliding and surfing with the best of both. So for either gentle exercise or frolicking fun on the water, hire from them before you buy.
